Notes of a Dirty Old Manby Charles Bukowski
"Bukowski. You either love him or hate him. This is one of his best collections of short stories raunchy, sodden, and bloated. Enjoy."
Synopses & Reviews
"People come to my door — too many of them really — and knock to tell me Notes of a Dirty Old Man turns them on. A bum off the road brings in a gypsy and his wife and we talk...drink half the night. A long distance operator from Newburgh, N.Y. sends me money. She wants me to give up drinking beer and to eat well. I hear from a madman who calls himself 'King Arthur' and lives on Vine Street in Hollywood and wants to help me write my column. A doctor comes to my door: 'I read your column and think I can help you. I used to be a Psychiatrist.' I send him away...".
Bukowski takes on the guise of the wise fool in this novel, describing the futility and beauty of life.
